Aaaaand the reason I’d never want to get into producing miniatures.

I’ve asked around about these things often enough to have become desensitised to the cost estimates. That still doesn’t mean I’m ready to take the plunge (especially in 28mm), but I’ve progressed (or regressed?) from thinking about these cost estimates as something astronomically out of my reach to something that could be manageable if I want it badly enough.

Regarding the £200 for a 28mm sculpt, Mike may have gotten that estimate from me as I mentioned it in passing, and it’s a figure I’ve heard sometimes when I’ve asked people who have had their own miniatures commissioned from professional sculptors. It might not always be as high as that, though. Some 28mm sculpts might go for £100 or £150 or thereabouts. Depends on what kind of figures you’re after.
